General Information

WebFLIS, managed by DLA Information Operations (J6), is a Logistics Information Services capability, providing essential information about supply items including the National Stock Number, the item name, manufacturers and suppliers (including part numbers), through a web interface connected to FLIS data. This information is primarily used by DLA, military services, and United States Government sponsored contractors doing business with the U.S. Government.

WebFLIS provides access to information essential for all logisticians - from engineers designing new weapons systems to property managers’disposal of items. WebFLIS users have access to the standard logistics information system in the Federal Government - the Federal Logistics Information System (FLIS). FLIS forms the foundation for all logistics information systems and data elements of the National Stock Number (NSN). It is the catalog of more than sixteen million (7.4M active) Supply Items. WebFLIS provides users with historical data on a NSN, both active and inactive. WebFLIS is a resourceful tool when trying to identify older supply items in order to turn into DLA Disposition Services for the appropriate demilitarization.

Account Establishment - Users of WebFLIS must register through the DLA Account Management and Provisioning System (AMPS) and must have one of the following: (1) DOD Common Access Card (CAC), (2) External Certificate Authority (ECA), (3) Federal Bridge Certification Authority (FBCA), or (4) Personal Identity Verification (PIV).

WebFLIS Benefits - One of the biggest benefits of WebFLIS is that it provides logistics information not just for DoD, but for the entire federal government. The system is updated multiple times a day, making WebFLIS information more current than what might be found on commercial websites. Logistics professionals rely on accurate information from official data sources to ensure warfi­ghters have the supplies they need to complete their mission.
